Back in October I decked out my fireplace with an assortment of pumpkins. I loved the look so much, that I kept trying to find something equally as cute to fill it with once the pumpkins were packed away. Unfortunately, trying to fill it with ornaments wasn't a viable option. Can you just imagine trying to fill up a fireplace with a ton of spherical ornaments? Not going to happen. Plus the cost of getting that many ornaments. Just not going to happen. I did however realize that I could hang a few ornaments from the fireplace screen for a much cheerier look that the drab, fire-less, black box.
See? Much better. And in the rare instances that I want a fire, I can simply remove them. Sure it would be so much better if I had a fireplace screen that I could just move to the side and I have dreams of getting a gold one like this someday:
But for now, I love the look of the fireplace with the pretty little ornaments hanging scattered across it.
